2003 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Love the comfortable seats as this is
my office away from home. I wanted a
car that would last as long as my
payments. I drive 40k a year so I took
the lease for 39 months and will buy it
at the end . the lease payments are 399
can't beat the price. I was a GM man
now a lexus driver for ever. I noticed
the transmission pause as noted in
other reviews hope it is software as
noted would love to see this fix as it
is the only coplaint I have. One thing
I would like to see is a power outlet
on the dash for my cell phone


Best Features

Memory seats, soft leather quiet ride


Worst Features

Lower price on the navigation system Power outlets on the dash

Review

My first luxury car, and the start of a
beautiful relationship. This car is
outstanding. From a beautiful
exterior, to a plush and more than
comfortable and gorgeous interior, this
car has it all. I got the black garnet
color, because it was so unusual, with
the black leather interior, and it is
absolutely beautiful. I'm hooked on
Lexus quality from the car to the
dealership, a fabulous experience!


Best Features

auto-dimming mirrors, leather and wood interior, exterior styling (LOVE the headlights!), interior comfort, low cabin noise, fabulous sound system!


Worst Features

A bit more power would be nice, but that's all I can think of. This car is just extraordinary!

Review

our 2003 Lexus ES 300 is one of the
worst riding cars we have ever owned.
Its suspension system doesn't even
small bumps making it very
uncomfortable to drive/ride on all
roads other than highways.


Best Features

Very quiet


Worst Features

improve suspension system

Review

Just completed 500 mile trip in a new
ES. Outstanding for quiet, comfortable
ride, great stereo, and soft leather
seats. Minimal to no road noise with
Michelin tires. Fit and finish is
perfect - as expected of Lexus. New 5-
speed automatic transmission is very
smooth. Plenty of head and leg room in
front seats for six-footers. Lexus has
made major improvements since the ES
was redesigned last year. Averaged 27.5
mpg, and hope to improve on that after
engine is completely broken in.


Best Features

Interior quality and comfort. Leather seating and wood trim is unmatched by rivals in my opinion.


Worst Features

Needs a bit more horsepower. Currently at 210. Should be closer to 250 to be similar to competition (Acura TL-S). Could have a pwr outlet behind console storage (instead of inside) to accomodate cell phones.
